WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Hunger Games threepeats atop the chart with 33.5 million on a very respectable 43 percent drop for an Easter weekend. The Games shatter the 300 million mark domestically; it has now earned more than any Twilight movie -- and every Harry Potter film except for the first and last.  Among the all-time top openers, only The Dark Knight and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, had better third weekends (and neither included Easter).  American Reunion placed with a disappointing 21.5 million; it will likely be the first of the franchise t make less than 100 million domestic. Titanic 3-D shows for a mere 17.4 million, which is the sort of money the original made about 4 months into its original theatrical run.  Then again, the total now sits at 618 million, which is the non-cliche use of awesome, when you consider The Hunger Games is the big movie story at 300 million of today's dollars.  Wrath of the Titans plunged 55 percent to pull in 15 million; its 59 million total is less than the Clash made its opening weekend.  Mirror, Mirror rounds out the Top Five with 11 million; the folks making Snow White and the Huntsman better convince people their flick is really different.
